1st lap of the season this AM. Mellow skin and short meadow skip to test the surface. Came down wet n dense yesterday, dried out overnight with a nice fluffy finish. Got another inch this AM for a tot

Musta worked. I got the job. Or maybe it was my interview shirt.    

Yesterday's harvest. 10-12" on the upper half of mountain, dense powder. Deeeeeeeep.

Just booked my flight to Steamboat, 2/23 to 2/28. They inflated the price by $40 since yesterday so I decided to jump all over it. All comparable flights are more expensive and have 1 stop. I read if they lower the fare I can call United customer support and they'll send me a gift card. @GrilledSteezeSandwich This is tubular!

Sounds radical.

It would be nice to have other people to go with. Is that for real or are you just being fucking stupid like usual? 

Absolutely not being stupid. Enjoralas said he might go. We were discussing it right next to you on Sunday. I never post anything stupid.

Be sure to get up to Strawberry Park hot springs, preferably on a clear night to see more stars than you thought imaginable.

Obviously a ski trip with friends is tough to beat but solo ski trips aren't the worst thing in the world either.

 

Saltman if you hike to the top to ski the bowl (above morningside??) be sure it's not sunbaked first. Looks can be deceiving.

I love solo trips, snowboard or non snowboard related. Do what you want, when you want and how you want.

Solo trips are great. I’ve done plenty, just not skiing related. I would be much better served to have someone with me for the terrain I prefer to ski for safety reasons.

I don't ski glades alone because a minor injury can quickly turn fatal if no one else skis by. That's why I stick to groomed runs with other people around. I told Enjoralas that if he comes to Steamboat we can ski some glades.

Not much to add other than this is a great point.

I had a binding break on me one time skiing trees solo at stowe in dick deep powder. Spent about an hour looking for my ski, couldn't clip back in, spent another 2 hours or so wading through dick to chest deep snow of varying densities back to any sort of trail since skiing tight, steep trees with one ski wasn't gonna work. When I finally found my way out of the woods, the only option to get back on the trail was to jump down a 10ft or so cliff, or else turn around and keep fumbling through the woods to find a better exit, so I jumped. I legit thought I was going to die out there, since I got stuck around noon and would lose sunlight.

I would have been seriously pissed if I died skiing VT.

If you would have died I don’t think you would get the opportunity to be pissed. 🤷‍♂️

Gotta keep the stockholders happy. They probably brought in an efficiency expert like in Office Space.  I can understand businesses that operate in today’s clinae have to be lean and efficient.

True, and i am sure with all of Vails properties, and 17 new properties, there are positions that are now overlapping.

Had a friend fall into a tree well at Jay and he was even skiing with a companion.

I'm going to start bringing the whistle I bought for hiking.

I always have a whistle in my jacket pocket, even if I'm skiing w/ friend(s).
